Atkins Responds to Dieter Lawsuit:
Atkins Nutritionals has responded to the cholesterol claims and lawsuit brought on by Jody Gorran and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM):

Atkins generally doesn't comment on litigation. But in this case, we must pose some questions before this story gets out of hand. Even today's New York Times article raises the possibility that, as the science certainly would suggest, this case has no merit. Further, PCRM and the complainant suggest that the lawsuit is just for publicity. We should not let the real issue, providing people with a scientifically validated nutritional choice in the face of a worldwide obesity and type 2 diabetes epidemic, be manipulated by this extremist animal rights vegan group.

Low-Carb Dieter Sues Atkins Over High Cholesterol:
The New York Times is reporting that a 53-year-old Florida man sued the estate of Dr. Robert C. Atkins and Atkins Nutritionals, Inc. on Wednesday. In the suit, which appears to be the first to involve the popular low-carb diet, the man claims that following the Atkins lifestyle for two years raised his cholesterol so much (from 146 to 230) that his arteries became clogged and required a medical procedure to clear them.
The plaintiff, Jody Gorran, who is being assisted by the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, an advocacy group that supports a vegan diet, is seeking $28,000 in damages. Mr. Gorran said he was using the suit to tell other people about the dangers of the diet and to have its promoters include warnings in books, other products and websites.

In responding to a request for comment, a representative for Atkins Nutritionals and the estate of Dr. Atkins said they stood by "the science that has repeatedly reaffirmed the safety and health benefits of Atkins."
